Air Tightness

Air tightness measures the amount of air flow entering and leaving a building. Air loss can occur through gaps and cracks in the fabric of a building. The method used to establish the level of air loss within a building is called the blower door test. Air tightness testing and thermal imaging will identify and highlight the areas within a building where heat is escaping. A key component of a passive house is Airtightness with less than 0.6 air changes per hour required.

Under the new building regulations, all new houses require an air tightness test. Improving the air tightness of a building is one of the most cost effective ways of improving energy efficiency

Waterford Insulation uses Vario as an Airtightness Solution.

Air Tightness Waterford Insulation Vario - As important to the building as skin is to the body

Vario from Isover is the most advanced airtightness and moisture management system on the market today. It is a membrane as intelligent as human skin – altering its structure according to relative humidity

The Vario System keeps heat in while it keeps draughts out. It is a truly exceptional product that exceeds all industry standards.

Vario facilitates the drying of the building structure while delivering superior levels of airtightness within the building envelope. It has an excellent variable Sd value, diffusing 25 times more moisture in summer than a structure absorbs in winter, a really outstanding performance to a degree that not only meets, but exceeds industry standards.

Vario Smart Vapour Barrier can create an air-tight shell around your building envelope, preventing any unwanted air leaks or draughts from penetrating.

Vario helps prevent mould and mildew growth by reducing the potential for moisture accumulation

Vapour retarders have been used for decades to protect wooden materials in roofs and walls from moisture damage by minimising the diffusion of moisture in areas where it can creates problems. Water vapour can move from outside in or inside out as it tries to move from areas of high vapour pressure to areas of lower vapour pressure. Insulated buildings need protection against
